Drunk on Love

Album: Talk That Talk (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Norwegian production duo StarGate produced this song, which samples "Intro" by The xx. "Intro" is the opening track of the British Indie Rockers' self-titled debut album, which spent eighty-seven weeks on the UK Albums Chart and won the 2010 Mercury Prize, an annual music award given to the best long player from the United Kingdom.
  • Longtime collaborator Ester Dean penned this song, which utilizes the oft-used love-as-addiction metaphor. The most obvious example of another song with the same topic is Robert Palmer's "Addicted To Love."
